its the ideal phone for hipsters:
- nobody else has it
The first 9 pages were positive and quite attractive towards the device. I don't know why but suddenly the 10th page became too judgmental and condemnatory. It's too early to suggest anything about the apps. There is a complete dedicated forum and a huge lot of people waiting for this device to be physically available at the retail stores. Many developers have already started working for a great number of apps. And the price must be for the uniqueness. It is one of it's kind.
nache, 19 Oct 2011Suddenly I felt N9 is already obsoleteHow so? If it works fast and smooth, it can have a 100MHz CPU running under there for all I care. It plays demanding games, will get apps, and will get firmware updates. Relax bro.
To comment on "once in a lifetime" and "dead operating system". N9 will be getting updates, actually first update is already ready and waiting for developers "blessing". Also if considering buying Nokia N9, Nokia has consistently said that the same or developed user interface will be used on different OS. Nokia has't commented what OS this is or if it supports QT etc. Anyway, seems quite sure that the N9/Harmattan will live after death of Meego in many Nokia phones...
come on nokia, how im going to watch porn online witchout flash support? I'm really disapoited...
The N9 has a turn to silence feature. When your phone rings, just turn it face down and it silences the call. Was it hard to figure out?
Dorian, 18 Oct 2011i know for iPhone 4, but i talk for N9, you NOT read specs of 535 and 540 chip (same play 28m)... moreYou really have no clue. The value on wikipedia was corrected since the initial 28M was false:
535 does 14M polygons, the same with the 530. It only does better at fillrate, but it's a question whether it gets the full 1000M pixels since bandwith is unknown in Apple's chip. As I said, fillrate is imortant for high resolutions. That's why Apple chose the 535 rather than 530, since it planned to use it in the iPad. The only other difference is DirectX 9 suppor as I said.
Find me the 28M:

USB on the go/micro sd nice to have but with 64 gb i do not need it.
regarding all the Processor talk, please look at the performance when using the Phone, the OS dos not need a dual core processor.
But let us see what is included in the 3500 updates and fixes..

Anonymous, 17 Oct 2011Anyone know which artists created those wallpapers showed on the preview phone of this article? :Phttp://brandbook.nokia.com/blog/view/item66127/?=mnb
I was really excited about getting this phone... The Fact that you can't Add custom Label to number in the contact a really big deal... So when i synce my Contact From my Gmail there custom label are not going to synce .. just Like WP7.. These OS's need to step out the stone age !!
Dorian, 17 Oct 2011Differences is CLEAR!

535 play (28 MPolys/s)

FYI, 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPad, they all use SGX535. 540 does 28M polygons. Also, 3GS is clocked at 100MHz and only does 7M polygons. Read up more.
Can't imagine Nokia selling many of these. Typical consumers probably won't buy unless he/she is a big Nokia fan. Every company is selling dual cores and 1080p recording - even SonyEricsson is late to the party with its Xperia Duo. Is it true N9 has no HDMI out, no USB-OTG and no microSD? Even the older models N8,E6,E7 have OTG & memory card support. And they priced it so expensive? Personally I think Nokia's marketing or R&D team might be out of touch with the real world
You know, Nokia may not be marketing or advertising the N9 alot, but here, in Singapore, I've seen pretty decent fanfare. I was walking around this afternoon when I saw a bunch of ninjas(!) giving out some sort of flyers, with the whole get-up, in black from head to toe, the whole shebang. Turns out, they were giving out shuriken-shaped flyers advertising the N9, inviting people to come to the nearby Nokia store to take a swipe, and claiming a free shuriken-shaped magnet.
I'm not sure what ninjas have anything to do with the N9, but it sure is creative, and attention-grabbing, I'll have to give them that. And with the price of the N9 being the same as Galaxy S2 currently, and cheaper than iPhone 4, I think it's gonna do decently well, here in Singapore, especially once the price drops a little bit after a while, since it's only just available here. Too bad there are too many iSheeps here also.
